That Boston Garden SOTM RB suggests was great to see but also something of a WTF moment as well.

I was excited because the first set was going great for me and looked like it had a chance to be a rockin show.
The Jack Straw > Althea opener seemed like a good sign. While the Jack is a solid 6 minutes the Althea is a long nearly 10 minute version. Neither song is played really intensely though (Jack gets very close) , more of a steady groove.
That was fine with me as the rest of the set included High Time and Lazy River so I figure Jerry is just going to jam evenly and stretch out a bit.
To make a long story short, that is what happened to the show! set II moving right along w/a bouncy Aikoright through to D/s where they come out of a 15 minute space into a 5 minute miracle>SOTM (9 minutes) and they walked of stage! While the SOTM was spectacular we were shocked that the show ended 15 minutes after space.
Would've been a bummer if that was the only one of the run I was able to see but I saw a bunch of those fall MSG & BG shows.
